We started this blog to share our journey to heal Thomas's heart.
His heart is now whole, and we must begin the process of healing our own broken hearts.
You are now perfectly healed and safe in the arms of Jesus.
You are so precious, and so loved. We wanted you so badly, and were so excited for you. We are so thankful for the fourteen days we had with you. They were such a blessing....such a gift. You were such a little fighter. You taught us to take nothing for granted. You brought us to our knees in prayer and closer to God. Those fourteen days were so hard, but so wonderful because they were with you. We wouldn't trade them for anything.
You will never know pain or fear, and what you are experiencing now is more wonderful than we can imagine. We are thankful for the promise that we will see you and hold you again in heaven.
While our arms are empty, we know you are being held by someone who loves you more than we do. Your daddy and I are being comforted by a God who knows what it is like to lose a son....only He gave His Son freely for us, and for you my sweet baby.
You were fearfully and wonderfully made, and God knew each of the days of your life before one of them came to be (Psalm 139:14, 16 NIV). We are so thankful that God made you for us, and trusted you with us. You touched more people in your two weeks than most people do in their whole lives. We are so proud of you, and so proud to be your parents. We know that our suffering was not in vain. Your precious life will live on in our hearts, and in the hearts of so many others. You are leaving quite a legacy.
Our lives will never be the same because of the time we spent with you, sweet Thomas. We miss you so much already.
We'll love you forever, we'll like you for always....as long as we're living, our baby you'll be!
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
(2 Timothy 4:7 NIV)
